Patxi’s Pizza Continues Southern California Expansion with Los Angeles Debut

by Katie Lee

Los Angeles — Following closely on the heels of a successful entry into San Diego, Patxi’s Pizza, a full-service restaurant chain, has continued its expansion in Southern California with a new location in Los Angeles. The outpost is now open downtown at L.A. Live in place of Lawry’s Carvery. It will serve as the brand’s flagship location.

The flagship Los Angeles restaurant features indoor and outdoor patio seating for more than 160 guests and an Express Window for late-night takeout.

“Of course, we’re thrilled to be opening the first Los Angeles location of Patxi’s Pizza in an area as iconic and central to the city’s heart as L.A. Live,” says Paul Koren, director of operations of Patxi’s Pizza. “Beyond being in an ideal spot for sports fans, concert goers and local residents, we’re proud to debut this location as the Patxi’s Pizza flagship restaurant and use it as the footprint for continued expansion in Los Angeles and beyond.”

In 2018, Patxi’s Pizza was acquired by Elite Restaurant Group, a multi-concept operator with a focus on emerging restaurant chains that also owns Slater’s 50/50, Daphne’s and Gigi’s Cupcakes. As part of the acquisition, Patxi’s Pizza revamped and relaunched its menu, which has expanded to include more Chicago-style deep dish and Neapolitan thin crust pizza offerings, a build-your-own pizza option, full lunch menu, additional happy hour specials, and even dessert pizzas. In addition to the L.A. Live location, Patxi’s Pizza also operates 21 full-service restaurants in San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Francisco’s Bay Area, Denver and Seattle, with an additional Los Angeles location opening in Porter Ranch in 2020.

Patxi’s Pizza was founded in 2004. In the last 15 years, Patxi’s has turned into a friendly neighborhood chain with 21 locations in California, Colorado and Washington. For more information, visit
